Eiffel Tower - Paris Day 1

After Notre Dame, we had "linner" at a little cafe Seine/Notre Dame adjacent. Then we did some Latin Quarter exploring. "Wandering" might be a better term. Linda saw a cool-looking building and said, "Let's go see that weird building!" I said, "That 'weird' building is probably a church," and it was. There are as many cathedrals in Paris as Mormon chapels in Provo, it seems.

There were charming little cobblestone streets, adding to the the "American in Paris" feeling.

Night had completely fallen by now, so it seemed time to go see the brightest lights - the Eiffel Tower. There is not much to say about that that hasn't already been said.

Every hour on the hour, twinkle lights go off. Up close, they resemble floodlights in size and brightness.
